Highland St. Terese's Pale Ale

Highland Brewing Company

USA

Another winner! I got this from the FIL along with their flagship Gaelic Ale. But the St. Terese is delicious, too. Not quite as deeply colored as I thought it should be, but it's clean and sweet, with a nice balancing hoppiness. All in all a very nice beer to savor. Grab it if you see it.

When recommending a beer, I want to see a beer be better than the average in its style. Unfortunately, in St. Terese's I see nothing but an average PA. If you're in the Carolina's, obviously there's an advantage to buying this over others because it's a local micro, and one that produces decent ales, but here in Atlanta for example, between Terrapin and Sweetwater, I see no reason to switch. I think most people in other micro markets might find similar results. Highland should be applauded for spearheading craft brewing in North Carolina, but I think their PA needs a little work.
